Future Tense description

Margaret Morgan’s The Second Cure is a frighteningly plausible vision of a near-future Australia battling both an unpredictable parasite and a lunge towards authoritarianism in Far North Queensland.  James Bradley’s Change trilogy also imagines humanity grappling with an outside infection and the panic it causes.  Their dystopian page-turners are thought provoking, disquieting and intense, posing important questions about courage, control and - as with all great science fiction - humanity itself.

Chair: David Sly
